plans to prevent this insanity. >> it sort of came up once when jim lehrer reminded them and said, raise your hand if you'll take a deal for one dollar in tax increases you'll take $10 in spending cuts. neither one of them wanted to take that deal. neither wants to approach this because no one wants to say if i cut a real deal, i will cut the programs you love. governor romney knows the revenue question will be back on the table in some form. senator nunn has been gone from the town for a while and he's probably grateful for that. he used to serve in what they call the world's most deliberative body. not so much anymore. >>> coming up, winston churchill once said, you can always count on americans to do the right thing after they've tried everything else. i'll ask senator nunn why he's optimistic this federal congress can come together ask come up with something he just suggested, the condition being a soft landing, not a hard, dangerous landing that could send us into a recession. that's coming up next on "your money." overmany discounts to thine customers!
